I was wondering which race would fit best for a build that engages in melee combat but also excels in the arts of conjuration/daedric summoning. Any help will be aprecciated, thank you Tongue_out_laughing


Zirik Helbain - Dunmer
Mordynak Ashwing - Breton Mage
Omkir Kinai - Khajiit Warrior

Next to nothing has been revealed about what bonuses races will get. Some assumptions can be made such as bosmer probably getting something archery related, but nothing spacific has been released. Devs have talked about wanting you to be able to make the experience your own so most likely any race will be able to be a melee fighter/ deadra summoner (if that's in game) just like past elder scrolls game. As for what race will be the best, only time will tell. Base on past elder scrolls game a dunmer may be a good choice and I see that you've chosen that race already. Of course I don't work for ZOS so I could be completely wrong lol

As much I as I hate saying this a Breton being skilled in magic as they are would be a good choice also in the Skyrim Bretons started with a Conjuration spell so if they follow that suit Breton but it also depends on your faction but just cause I'm an Mer at heart Dunmer would me my choice

There will be now racial bonuses. But lore-wise it would most likely be the Dunmer.

Lore-wise it would be an Altmer or Breton, Altmer are best at magic in general, but the Bretons are 2nd best at magic and especially good at healing and summoning, the Dunmer are especially good at destruction.....

Lore-wise, I would say Bretons are the best for a melee/conjuration character. There's a reason they start with a summoning spell in Skyrim, and there's nothing stopping them from picking up a weapon and swinging away with it. Dunmer are good at everything (except for typical heavy armor tank type) but not really great at anything at the same time. Altmer are good with all things magic, but are thought to be lacking in the physical department.

Based on previous games' stat bonuses (for related skills):
Dunmer = +blade, +medium armor,
Breton = +conjuration, -endurance
Altmer = +conjuration (smaller than Breton), -strength, -endurance

So really you're looking at Breton or Dunmer. Depends on if you want to have your race be better (lore-wise) at weapons/combat or be the race that is the best at conjuration.

Thank you all for the information, and I think that I might go for a dunmer though I am considering a breton. This is only going to be my alt being as my main will be a khajiit

Orsimer and Redguards are probably the best melee races imo
I would say for a cross between melee and daedric summoning and general magic you have to do for Dunmer, but it does depend what skills you want to focus on the most, will you focus more on magic than melee, for example? In that case, I would suggest Altmer.

This is all lore related by the way, in ESO you should be able to create a powerful character in certain aspects of combat no matter what your race. I am aware racial skill lines have been announced but I don't think they will have a huge impact.
